First day of spring and the weatherman said it would be “dreary.” Indeed. This stretch from February to April is my least favorite season in Montana. Cold, windy, alternating between dry and rainy, dusty or muddy. No matter how nice the day is (and we’ve had a few), there still isn’t anything growing out there. No leaves, no flowers. There are a few tiny blades of grass starting to poke up though, so spring can’t be too far away. We’re going to clean out the greenhouse this weekend and start some seeds (yeah!).
To keep my spirits up until the real spring greens arrive, I’ve been knitting a few “spring” woolies. I made Sully a new hat (Purl Bee’s Garter Ear Flap Hat in Ultra Alpaca “Fennel”), and me a cardigan with my favorite cable (Acorn Trail in Ultra Alpaca Lovage). Mr. B and I have also been knocking projects off our indoor honey-do list before the weather gets nice (more on those later).
